Just be careful and not to press down on your bumper too much because I did that and it left a small crease

Yah, I'm dissapointed with how easily the covers pick up dings and creases. I've got one in my rear bumper from some parallel parker, and a little depression where I barely backed into something in my garage.

thats when PDC comes in handy.. too bad I missed adding it in during my order, I was a day late before it when on production....

but the good side is no PDC sensors at tha back gives it a cleaner look, I heard they fade to at times. Oh Well!

For those with a clearbra on the front of the car...did you also have the film applied to the painted reflector? I am thinking about doing this just for protection, but at the same time it will not cost all that much to get the reflectors touched up or painted if they get a ding in them...

You spent 70k on a car and your going to spray paint the reflectors?

Doh.
